As devoted, perhaps even obsessive, fans of[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Bruno Mars’[/lastfm] singing/songwriting skills and as crazed admirers of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm]‘s glam get-ups and tight gams, the power pairing of these pop stars seems like it would be a match made in radio heaven.
When we found that Bruno Mars did a cover of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls,” we were super exited to hear the finished product.
If you took Bruno Mars and gave him a residency as a lounge singer in a Vegas dive bar, this is probably what his pop covers would sound like. Mars is definitely a talented vocalist, but his voice is better suited to his own soulful creations and not Katy Perry’s [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dr. Luke [/lastfm]created pop anthems.
